Online PR News – 23-November-2013 – New York City, New York – November 22, 2013 – NEW YORK – The theme of this year’s Children at Heart Gala Dinner and Celebrity Fantasy Auction, hosted by Children of Chernobyl (CCOC), is “Time Flies” which will mark the Chernobyl disaster’s 27th anniversary and the continuous work of CCOC. The star-studded event will include a celebrity roster of attendees and will feature luxury auction items. CCOC has rescued 2,863 children on 99 rescue missions, airlifting them from Chernobyl to Israel to escape the contaminated living conditions caused by the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor explosion. This holiday season, celebrities and New York’s elite have once again committed to this cause in full force, donating time, money and auction items. Last year’s gala raised millions to save the Children of Chernobyl. Bridget O’Brien PR and Events is helping promote this event.
